At the centre of clinical medicine is the practice of taking a history and conducting an examination. Unfortunately most textbooks concentrate on a conservative approach to history and examination which provides a framework, but bears little relationship to the way in which an experienced doctor functions. This wholly new text emphasizes that, in practice, the clinical process is quite different for different patients and for the same patient at different times. The objective of this introductory text is to portray a balanced and flexible problem-solving approach which typifies good clinical practice.
